Anodised aluminum is a versatile solution for architectural, electronics, and automotive applications, prized for its corrosion resistance and vibrant colors. Join us and elevate your projects with our premium finishes

The Process –¬†Unlocking the Secrets of Anodising

Ever wondered how aluminum gets its sleek, durable finish? It’s all in the anodising process.

First, the aluminum is immersed in an electrolyte bath, and a direct current is applied. This simple step triggers an oxidation reaction on the surface, forming a protective layer of aluminum oxide. Depending on the product’s requirements, this layer can vary from 5 to 25 microns thick.

But here’s where the magic happens: By adjusting the voltage, current, and electrolyte composition, we can precisely control the thickness and properties of this anodised layer. The result? A surface that’s not only tough but also customisable to suit your needs.

From natural matte finishes to an array of stunning colors, the possibilities are endless. So, whether you’re aiming for durability or adding a pop of personality, anodising gives you the power to make it happen.”
